Discount Code!

We are thrilled to announce that Girls Who Code is offering St. Kate’s affiliated youth a discount to attend the two week summer campus programs to girls 10-18 years old this summer in three Twin Cities locations.

Full scholarships are available. Also: If applicants use the promo code STKATES prior to April 30 you can have a $200 discount on the costs.

In addition to considering these for your own child, could you help us get the word out?

We are so happy Girls Who Code has chosen to bring their proven curriculum to Minnesota. The campus programs are a real investment in any young woman’s future. As evidence: Many of the corporations that have helped to fund Girls Who Code have also agreed to prioritize internships to young women who have completed one of the Girls Who Code programs! *(You can see the companies we are talking about listed on this partnership page.)
If you have any specific questions about the program or other ways you might bring computer science to kids and teachers you know, feel free to reach out to Siri Anderson. Thanks for your assistance in getting this opportunity in front of other families with girls aged 10-18!

Dr. Kelly Publishes Article


Congratulations to Dr. Kate Kelly who’s recent article, “Data is Extremely Useful!” Preservice Teachers Growth in Literacy Assessment and Instructionhas been published in the ​Journal of Scholastic Inquiry: Special Edition Fall 2017, Volume 8, Issue 1 (link opens article).

Using a case study framework, Dr. Kelly studied the confidence and proficiency of preservice teachers (PTs) in the area of literacy assessment and instruction. The mixed methods study was conducted in a U.S. university literacy methods course, taught both on campus and at a partner K-6 elementary school. Through the Case Study Report, the culminating signature assignment of the course, PTs develop and use assessment tools to measure student learning, organize literacy instruction with attention to the diverse strengths, needs, and interests of students, and work collaboratively and productively in an elementary school setting. Analysis of survey and assessment results indicate that preservice teachers feel more prepared for the realities of assessment and instruction in their future teaching, they better understand literacy development in the context of classroom instruction, and they are more confident in their teaching of literacy as a result of the field-based case study assignment, though they need additional support developing expertise in assessment knowledge.

Thank you Dr. Kelly for your scholarship!
